Everyone is sitting on cash. Interest rates are rock bottom.......what are the alternatives.... It is however interesting to compare lacklustre performance of Henderson Smaller still down some 22.5% since March 1100p peak against Herald Investment Trust ( small-cap media-tech) which had raced back to achieve a new all-time high of 1550p since the March sell-off. Although yesterday retraced to 1450p but still on par with pre-crash peak. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Discount to NAV is about 10% here, that’s wider than recently but about the long term average. I’m sitting on a pile of cash - may add here soon. Not sure which way markets are going to go.

Kind of hoping this revisits 700p so I can add a few more.

HSL almost traded in line with nav at market peak. Suspect 5-7% discount could be the new normal. HSL is known for its decent track record so not expecting a double digit discount anytime soon. But just my view. Still c.50% gains from here c.750p if HSL can nudge back to old high just over 1100p

I am in at 664. An apparent professional on another board suggested there was value in the market at these levels. He said trying to catch the bottom was too difficult, and that it risked missing the value...so his suggestion pick an IT that pays a dividend and get paid that 3-4% dividend for a year or so while you wait for share prices to recover Seems eminently sensible to me HSL has fallen about 40% in the last couple of months...very similar to some of my direct holdings. So selling those, and moving into HSL seems a no-brainer, and far less risky If you do pound cost averaging like the previous poster is doing it might even be better still

15% discount to NAV whereas its usually around 8%. Looks attractive compared to BRSC 9% discount to NAV and SLS 8%.

Agree, imo one needs these as part of your portfolio. But personally I don't think you should use from 2009 as that was just after the crash of 2008! Its hardly a fair comparison. The good news is if you do it from just before the crash to todays date these both do very well. We will go through another crash , thats life. It normally happens when people can't remmeber the last one. Hence why it can often be once per decade. The lesson though is to ignore all that and just keep invested. In the long term thats what wins hands down. Timing is a mugs game. Im saying tha with a bit of cash held back but there you go! lol

Z-scores can be a useful starting point, but they do not tell you how the trust will perform in the future, so it’s always important to look carefully at the fundamentals so that you can make an informed decision. Each investment trust’s Z-score is published on the Morningstar website and you may also come across them in the financial press. If you decide to use them please be aware that they often change quickly as the discounts can widen or tighten dramatically over the course of a single day.
